A Marvelous Cold Summer Soup

On a blazing hot Savannah summer’s day, nothing can beat a really good ice-cold summer soup.  I didn’t want to make one—my kitchen is running at temperatures hovering in the 100’s since the a/c system is currently non-functional and the repairmen are baffled.   And I couldn’t find a single cold soup anywhere in Savannah except for one gazpacho where they overload it with blazing hot jalapenos.  Then I thought of one of my favorite wintertime soups—Papillote’s Butternut Squash. What if I chilled it, I wondered.  I gave it a try.  After a few hours’ of refrigeration, I added a couple of ice cubes and sat down to eat.  This was pure summertime bliss!  Their slightly sweet, subtly spicey butternut flavor takes to chilling like it was a heaven-sent idea. It is perfect!
